Simon Pegg and Nick Frost already have one iconic British horror-comedy under their belts thanks to Edgar Wright’s “Shaun of the Dead,” but can lighting strike twice? The two comedians co-star in the upcoming “Slaughterhouse Rulez,” from director and rock musician Crispian Mills.
“Slaughterhouse Rulez” centers around an esteemed British boarding school thrown into chaos after a sinkhole appears at a nearby fracking site and releases something hellish. Asa Butterfield and Finn Cole play a couple of the students who team up with their teaches to fight for survival. Pegg and Michael Sheen star as teachers.
Mills co-write the script for “Slaughterhouse Rulez” with Henry Fitzherbert. The director’s last film, “A Fantastic Fear of Everything,” also starred Pegg. The actor and Frost are best known as the stars of Wright’s Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, which includes “Shaun of the Dead,” “Hot Fuzz,” and “The World’s End.”
“Slaughterhouse Rulez” is set for release in the United Kingdom on October 31. Watch the trailer below.
